    The receptionist said, "you were right, you are pregnant". My quantitative Hcg was 21. I was 11 dpo when that was taken. Is this number good or bad??? I wish it was higher. I go again for another blood test on Friday. This is so stressful. I feel like I can't get excited.

    That number is fine.... IVF pregnancies have lower HCG numbers.... As long as it doubles every 48-72 hours you will do fine :)
    Congrats!!!

    Really I didn't know that.
    I figured the HCG hormone comes after inplantation and is something your body just produces regardless of Natural or assited conception.
    At 4wks 2days mine was 685 at 5wks 4days it was 22,284 they have found I am having twins:happydance:

    Jasmak congratulations on your BFP:happydance: and your HCG level is within normal limits. As the other ladies mentioned it is more to do with the levels doubling than the levels themselves.
